UPDATE...it gets better!

http://alaskadispatch.com/dispatches/news/7210-details-emerge-after-millers-security-agents-detain-journalist

(snip)
The firm Drop Zone Security is apparently being investigated by the (Alaska) Department of Public Safety in connection with its handling of a Joe Miller campaign event on Sunday where Drop Zone agents arrested and handcuffed Alaska Dispatch editor Tony Hopfinger.

The DPS case comes as public attention remains focused on questions surrounding the incident, including why Miller employed private security guards, some of whom were active-duty military, and what led to the physical confrontation that ended with Hopfinger's arrest....

Paingates has a very interesting investigation of Dropzone, the security firm hired to protect Joe Miller. To quote Patrick in summing up:

"Joe Miller chose a security firm for his campaign event which is not only unlicensed, but also right at the heart of an extreme militia group, with the owner of the security firm being a local commander of the militia and also the main supplier. This Alaskan militia is headed by the notorious Norm Olson, who played a major role in the radical militia movement in the 1990's in Michigan, a movement which is at least partly to blame for the Oklahoma bombing. "

These people are just waiting for an incident in oder to be able to cy "Tyranny!" and release their righteous pitbulls. Very scary, these people are out there.

How exciting! Another day and a new opportunity for Joe to obfuscate, parse and lie. "Tales of the Northland - Proud and Free to Make Stuff Up."

His connections to right wing militias must be headlined and repeated. There's a Todd Palin connection. Headlines, over and over.

Miller and these fascist thugs need to be confronted and revealed for the slime they are. They cannot be allowed to gain another voice the Senate.

This article reeked of demagoguery from "vigilante security force". I should have stopped reading. It is getting easier to spot people that really have nothing to say but instead are just writing a political hack piece

Thanks for the remarkable insight, Cool.

OT but important - new details uncovered about Miller and Drop Zone owner.
He and his gang of goons are A I P members:

Yep, this is truly frightening:

Joe Miller chose a security firm for his campaign event which is not only unlicensed, but also right at the heart of an extreme militia group, with the owner of the security firm being a local commander of the militia and also the main supplier. This Alaskan militia is headed by the notorious Norm Olson, who played a major role in the radical militia movement in the 1990's in Michigan, a movement which is at least partly to blame for the Oklahoma bombing.

Thank's for posting this. I hope this information is spreading around Alaska quickly. This is an extremely violent group, true would-be American terrorists.

Joe Miller is pure, unadulterated slime.

Can anyone name any of the current crop of teabag candidates that aren't their own worst enemy? It's one thing when there is one or two whacked individuals in a large group, but when it's all of them, well then that's a horse of a different color.

So, Joe thinks if you're on your lunch hour, "your own time," that makes it OK to break the law??

Joe Miller's private security goons who arrested the reporter were not licensed in Alaska. The reporter said they were like military. They sound like Black Water thugs. I think the security guards are the real story in the episode. Any enterprising reporters out there? Check it out.
09:11 AM on 10/20/2010
They did check it out. The two are active duty Army troops who did NOT tell their commanders of their second jobs. THAT is a big NO NO in the military. When I was in the military, you had to get the permission of your commander to even get married! So moonlighting without permission is really a violation.

He doesn't seem so different from the rest of those cuckoo nest jokers.

"Yes, I lie, cheat and steal. Oh, and I also skip debates, rough-up reporters, humvee at the head of a parade of fat armed citizens, and I'll cry if I want to."

I definitely think we should put up a fence to keep "undesirables" out. But I live in Canada and I want the fence between my country and Alaska!!!!
